In addition to general feedback, it would be nice to hear whether this works in Win98/Vista/7/Wine.

Great, Relabsoluness, good work, an impressive list. I will implement this.

As stated, primary information about the used OS is quite relevant, so maybe it should be some label of a post about a bug.
Inspired by the IrfanView forum on behalf of quick information about some posting-environments,
I like to suggest an extra option in the members profile section (LP?), showing below the avatar, about the local OS version.

This will enhance understanding the specific problem, without asking for obvious details first.
Of course testing in another environment like my Win98 on my second laptop can still be mentioned in the post.

Sam: You might want to upgrade to service pack 3, it's really a good thing to do so... lotsa bugfixes and a couple of new useful things.

Works fine under Vista x64 here. So far it crashed only due to crappines of its vst host. Exactly as on my XP.

2 Jojo : Just to check - is 'service pack 3' the same as the mentioned '1.17.02.53'. ?

service pack 3 is a windows update. your picture says that you (maybe) use winxp with service pack 1, which is pretty old. service pack 3 includes many fixes and a couple of new features, one of the being native WPA2 support for example (if you're using WLAN, this is mandatory nowadays).

Windoze SP, I see. This snapshot is from my studio system computer. At the moment, due to circumstances, I'm working on a laptop with Windows XP Personal Service Pack 2 the last 4 months, but I was too lazy to change the info.

I have a personal policy to be very withdrawn to get new Windoze versions on a system.
Automatic updates are disabled. Just because of a lack of trust.

I did notice the pattern cut. I am going to try something though. Opening a 5,101 pattern song and seeing what happens [kind of like how you can open [but not create] songs that have fewer than 4 channels]. Speaking of channels, I will have to play with the channel manager as well to see if you can reduce songs to less than 4 channels again. That would be funny! :lol: I also noticed that the spin control that controls how many patterns are shown ahead of the active one has now been removed. That is odd. Perhaps that is controlled in a different location [or not at all].
Apparently the channel thing does not do anything. Row minimum:  4, row maximum:  1,024
Here is what I discovered. It can open songs that are more than 4,000 patterns in length, but they are truncated to 4,000 patterns [which ended up being 3,999 for me because of the fact that my patterns start at 1 as opposed to 0].

I think while your policy seems logic it's counter productive. The newest version with the latest update is usually the most secure version.

New version works swell on my Vista 32. Question, what are the "parameters" used when timestretching?
